Summary: Ukrain, a semisynthetic thiophosphoric acid compound of alkaloid chelidonine from Chelidonium majus L. (1) causes regression of various tumours. Among other effects, its action seems to depend on the stimulation of the immune system which very often is deficient in cancer patients. Its use in a patient with subtotal extirpation of a frontal anaplastic grade III astrocytoma seems to have reduced growth speed significantly.
